people, actually, who has debated both barack obama and mitt romney, so you are in a unique place to tell me what you made of both of their performance. whatever way you spin this from the republican side, the job front has to be good news not only for the president but also america, but the number has now gone down to 7.8% for the first time since 8% of his presidency. >> i think that's found to be good news, but i also think you have to take it in the context that 7.8% is still unacceptably high. but it is good news, and i think it's going to be of some help to the president, but certainly with the numbers of unemployed americans we have now, the 23 million, i guess it is, it's still an unacceptable situation. i think the president will concede that. >> jack welsh said today, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change the numbers. is there any merit to the argument these numbers aren't quite what they seem? >> i would be very cautious about saying that, piers, unless i had some kind of substantiation to it, and, of course, we don't want to sou

. in florida, before the debate, there were polls, three polls in florida. obama was leading by one, one and three. since the debate, there have been two polls, romney has been leading by three and two. that makes a swing from plus two for obama to plus 2 mav for romney. virginia, same thing. obama up by 2 in two different polls before the debate. after the debate, obama up by 3 in one poll, but romney up by one and three in another poll. north carolina, that state has been trending into the romney camp for months, even real clear politic high school before the debate, romney lead of eight tenths of a percent. there has been one poll in north carolina after the debate and it had a romney margin of nine. the obama campaign is spending money in the state, but they've reduced the amount of their television buy by 40% from where it was in june at a time when they're ramping up in every other battle ground state. they can't pull out without if being a news story. >> bill: that's the big indicator, where they allot their television money and north carolina, they pretty much think they're not g
to make anyone same old. before the debate between romney and obama, did anyone think romney had a chance of winning this election? do you think there is a chance that obama could lose? >> a chance. president obama was ahead by 3- 5. romney's favorable swore under water. it was in bad shape in ohio, michigan, and pennsylvania. i would put it -- i would give obama the edge 60-40. watch ohio. >> watch ohio. there is a way for romney to win it. if he loses ohio, it is tougher for him. he has made that more possible by what he did in the debate. >> it is a jump ball. it is possible for romney to win. you look state-by-state, which is the reason that before the debate i would say that romney had little chance. you saw him falling off a cliff and these key states. the romney people would tell you heartening support for the president, sought the support for romney. you are seeing the reverse. >> i have thought before hand there was a greater chance that romney could win because there was a series of state polls before the debate. they showed it was closing after romney had a bad september. it co
build his momentum from last week's debate, and president obama focusing on the american people who carried him forward despite mistakes made in 2008. one new poll was released in just the past hour. that is the new gallup daily tracking poll. it shows president obama and mitt romney now tied 47%. romney erasing the 5-point lead the president had before the debates. right now president obama is about to make modern history. the president is in california where he'll unveil a national monument in horne of cesar chavez who led the farm worker monument. it's the first national monument since the 1700s to horne the latino. the latino vote is heavily skewed towards the president, but the issue is enthusiasm. we know this visit today in california with this national monument is a big one for the president. as for governor romney, he took direct aim at president obama's handling of foreign policy during his speech at the military institute in virginia. it's the tenth foreign policy speech of romney's campaign. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear
in the debate. vice president biden spent a lot of time trying to assure everyone that the under an obama administration, iran would not be allowed to get a bomb but privately a number of israelis really question the resolve of the obama administration to take the steps necessary for iran or possibly a military strike. jamie? jamie: leland vittert, live in jerusalem. leland, thank you so much. bill: now the morning after how are the two campaigns playing this debate today especially after exchanges like this one? >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that is $3200 benefit cut. >> that didn't happen. >> these are from your actuaries. >> more people signed upper for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president -- so you judge, out of line or fair game. we'll talk to both campaigns, live, next. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. nature valley t
of an issue in the debate. mitt romney raised it last week and president obama blamed exxon mobil and they fired back at the president when he suggested changing the tax law to affect that company and it will come up in the v.p. debate and more down the stretch especially if prices are around $4 a gallon. >>eric: what do you think of the idea of relaxing the epa standards? the way i understand it, it is the california epa standard and keeping the national epa standard in place with the blending requirement. what do you think of that idea? >>guest: i'm not an energy expert but the politicians always have to be active in this situation you cannot just it is back and all the people in california, they are upset, they want something done. you can just say, we cannot do anything, it is up to the speculators and the markets. you have to try something. even though a last times when you do something, times it doesn't work. you have to be active whether you are a democrat or republican. you have to respond to the concerns. when you are spending this amount of money, $70 or $80 to fill up t
he was a kid. tonight, under pressure to turn things around after president obama's first debate performance or lack thereof. congressman ryan looking to boost the romney campaign's recent rise in the polls tonight. the debates are not usually game changers but analysts say this year could be an exception. carl cameron is fouling the presidential candidate. but, first, to ed henry on road with us here in danville. high stakes for the vice president after the president's performance, in doubt, right? >>reporter: that is right. because of the president's flop this puts more pressure tonight on vice president wide biden. the president, who is campaigning in miami, telephoned the vice president to wish him good luck. democrats are counting on him to shake up the momentum. that is going to an tough task tonight when you talk to political analysts. >> the vice president is going to come out and try to be defensive. the vice president, a strength of his, is his emotion and passion. that is both a positive and sometimes a weakness. you will see him come out and defend the president, not
obama at their first debate, the gop nominee now wants voters to see him as commander in chief. he's done just that in a series of foreign policy speeches, including one here at the virginia military institute where he kudz the president of allowing the middle east to drift closer towards war. telling a crowd of cadets and supporters at the virginia military institute that hope is not a strategy on foreign policy, mitt romney wasted no time in building his case that the middle east has grown more dangerous under president obama's watch. exhibit a was last month's attack that left a u.s. ambassador dead at the american consulate in libya. >> the attacks on america last not should not be seen as random acts. they're expressions of a larger struggle playing out across the broader middle east and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> reporter: romney then seized on the recently violence in syria and the potential for an iranian nuclear weapon to issue a dire warning, that war in the region could be on the horizo
of the conventions and particularly with obama getting something of a bounce going into the debates that obama had a clear edge and that, in fact, it would be very hard to turn this around for romney in the final weeks. what we're seeing now i think is that may not be the case and the october surprise everyone always talks about is, in fact, that we're back where we were in the spring. it's a very close race. >> and in fact, to the point of both of the campaigns, they've been saying all along they thought in the end this was going to be a very tight race, but some of the numbers that really jump out for me, jackie, are enthusiasm and engagement. 67% of romney's supporters now back him strongly. 82% say they're giving a lot of thought to this election. this was a guy who going into his convention, and not the most successful convention, either, was still having trouble getting people really excited about his campaign. has he turned that around? >> you know, there's two things here. i mean, we talked about this all the way going up to the debate how important that debate was, and it was very importa

on wednesday, as president barack obama, and mitt romney met for the first presidential debate and the candidates sparred as you heard over taxes and the deficit as well as health care. wall street reform and the role of government. with mitt romney taking some sharp shots at the president's record these past four years. >> we're seeing right now is, in my view, a trickle down government approach which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams and that's not working the. proof of that is 23 million people out of work and the proof one out of six people in poverty, the proof 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps the proof of that 50% of college graduates this year can't find work. >> paul: there's little doubt romney's commander performance helped the g.o.p. ticket. the question is, how much? let's ask wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, mary anna stacia o'grady and kim strassel. dan, how important was this debate for mitt romney's candidacy. >> it was not only very important for mitt romney'
they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real recovery and that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: ryan insinuated that president obama's debate performance last week was motivating the vice president. >> i know you're on a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. >> reporter: as for who won, it depends on who you ask. polls taken right after the debate are mixed. in a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters, 50% thought the vice president won. 31% sided for ryan and 19% called it a tie. 56% thought biden would be an effective president if necessary compared with 49% for ryan. not surprisingly, both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balanced and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risks of electing a romney-ryan ticket. the next presidential debate is tuesday. randall pinkston, cbs news, danville, kentucky. >> if you plan in voting in maryland, d.c. or virg
hillary clinton and barack obama in the debates. he was the one winning the debates. >> he's a very strong debater. i'm sure that that's the biden that will show up this week, but part of the problem that a president and a vice-president faces is that they can be insulated very easily. they speak to crowds that adore them. >> right. >> they aren't orphanage challenged with tough questions from reporters as we've seen lately and i think that's a big challenge for biden this time around. >> historically the vice-president debates, i think, vealyielded a lot more entertaining moment and some think they'll stand out more. >> lloyd benson and dan quayle, 2002008. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. (cheer (cheers) >> that was a fierce moment. >> that was a strong zinger and perhaps the most memorable moment from the vice-presidential debate and often, a vice-presidential debate is about assurance. can the second person on the ticket become president and step in if need be. you've got to remember in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been
president obama if the debate commission would have allowed him to use the teleprompter? >> i didn't know he was unable to use the teleprompter. i think it would have gone smoother for him. that's why they have speech writers. >> reporter: do you think he should have been allowed to use it? >> i think they all this should. how do you memorize a 90-minute debate. >> reporter: why do you think the debate commission didn't allow obama to use a teleprompter? >> i don't know why. >> reporter: was that fair? >> i don't think it was fair. i don't think, you know, he got enough opportunity to speak at times. they would keep trying to cut him short. >> i think he was holding back a little bit. >> reporter: holding back? why do you think he used the strategy to hold back and let rom recommend look so good? >> because this is only the first debate and he has to be careful what he says. so... >> reporter: do you think it was fair for the debate commission to not let president obama use a teleprompter? >> no. i mean, you could tell he was struggling. but... what can do you? >> reporter: do you think it w
you have the real romney in the debate, versus the real obama, versus the manufactured messiah that we have been led to believe he is. we have the real guy with the real record, versus the guy with the real concrete plans. they are horrified because this is substantive and it is not going to go back. i don't think obama can recover, major things in the debates coming up? >> that's an excellent analysis. juan? >> i must say -- >> i am thrilled david that you are so convinced that it's over-- >>> i don't think it's over. >> but i must say, i remember being on this show just a week ago and sean was telling me about a left-wing conspiracy to skew the polls. now the polls are golden-- >>> let me answer that. >> now we love the polls. the polls are wonderful. >> sean: stop spinning. [laughter] >> sean: i am glad you are cracking yourself up, juan. hang on. let me help educate out polls. >> yes, thanks. >> sean: the pew poll is using a democratic sample method that still out-samp lipping democrats by a margin higher than obama had in 2008, which nobody believes is going to happen! and still,
that the democratic base wanted barack obama to be in his first presidential debate. the answer to your question really is, did he push the envelope too much? and i would say he did not push the envelope too much. i've been taking phone calls for the last two hours from a lot of folks who were in the gop base and they think that he did. i find it interesting that they're not saying anything about his substance. >> all right. ann, let me bring you in. you're far too beautiful for michael toll ever pull off anything close to you. let me bring you in on this. it's the truth. i want to talk about the medicare. we had high anticipation of whether or not the 47% comment would come up. it did in fact. what the showdown over medicare would look like between these two men. let me play one of the exchanges, ann. >> what we're saying is, no changes for anybody 55 -- >> what mitt romney is proposing -- >> the kinds changes we're talking about for younger people like myself is don't increase the benefits for wealthy people as fast as anybody else, slowly raise the retirement age over time. >> look, these guy
? the worse deal? a bad debate or a good job number, dan? >> if president obama can turn around perceptions about the economy that ultimately will be a bigger deal. incumbent presidents have suffered through bad fist debates and been a table bounce back. if you have a really lousy economy it's tough to go against that. the interesting thing is that the obama campaign for months after one weak jobs number after another have always discounted the unemployment number. i think today they want people to look at that and they want people to think we've gone through at least a psychological barrier. there's been some evidence since the conventions that people do feel a little bit better about the commiff. that was helping president obama until the denver debate. now this race is tight and very much in flux. gwen: let's talk about the trend lines. the president can still claim 31 months of unsbrurmented job growth but mitt romney just made that point about how if different things were true this would be 11%. does he have a point? >> well, you can take statistics and play with them all you want. yes
obama say he was off in the debate. we've got numbers that simultaneously give the president a boost on the economy and take away key republican line of attack that we all have learned well that, nation's unemployment rate remains above 8%. 31 days from now, hillary, what is going to resonate more with voters? will it be style or substance? >> that's a great question, randi, because i think that, you know, there was a lot of theater, not just on the stage the other night, but, you know, in the mediate next day and people talking about performances, but i think when we look at kind of dial groups from undecided voters and even the cnn groups and other independent groups, you know, what people said was, okay, mitt romney won the debate on -- on style, but it didn't change their mind about the election, and i think voters are really looking for answers, like these jobs reports i think are -- are significant, and that's why the republicans are doing everything they can to discredit them because what we're saying -- what we're seeing is that we're moving in the right direction. we found o
. >> and, finally, will we see a different game from president obama in the next debate? >> well, again, i think now that barack obama has had the opportunity to meet both mitt romneys, i don't doubt that he'll make some adjustments. i know he's looking forward to the next debate. >> robert gibbs, thanks very much for your time this morning. >> george, thanks for having me. >> let's hear from the romney campaign. ed gillespie joining us this important. ed, thanks for getting up this morning. you heard robert right there, masterful, theatrical, fundamentally dishonest. i guess his basic point now about governor romney on his tax plan is either that he's not telling the truth about the scale of the tax plan or abandoning his economic theory. which one is it? >> well, the problem they have is that the debate's performance on wednesday evening was not a matter of style, it was a matter of substance, and governor romney laid out a plan for turning this economy around, getting things moving again. he had a fact-based critique of president obama's failed policies that the president was unable to
from the debate which is big bird. obama campaign dispatched a new, tall, yellow-feathered surrogate to follow the campaign around and remind them of the line from the debate. mitt romney saying he would fire big bird. and ever since, president obama has been out there enjoying the campaign's big bird moment. >> when he was asked what he would do to cut spending, he said he would go after public television. for all you moms and kids out there, don't worry, somebody is finally cracking down on big bird. elmo has made a run for the the border. he's bringing the hammer down on sesame street. >> although mitt romney clearly won the debate, the obama campaign right away on thursday managed to crystallized the public's funny bone. a cross between a funny bone and a hot nerve reaction to defend big bird and company. that was thursday. then on friday, the obama campaign got that huge jobs report with unemployment falling below 8% for the first time in the obama presidency. unemployment above 8% has been a favorite talking point for mitt romney and that talking point on friday went kaput. and
have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, ronl is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack, if biden doesn't do a good job against ryan, and if the president doesn't show up and isn't strong in the second debate, then you're going to have a tossup race. >> well, i would disagree with your approach, first of all. i don't approach that way. that's going back and relate gating all the old arguments. in spirit what i would do unlike shrumy, i would take the big issue that is separate the candidates, don't get into the little trench warfare about what's your tax plan and where were you on medicare two weeks ago. i would say where did you stand on saving the american auto industry. you had one position, i had another position. where are you on equal pay? republicans are against equal pay by law. these are big differences. don't talk about
then that the jobs report is enough to cancel out obama's debate performance, or will there be continued damage? >> i don't think there's any comparison. the jobs reports are about real people and real lives and where the economy is going. the debate was, as i said, just sort of important theater, and -- but if i -- i actually watched the debate again yesterday just to try to get it. president obama didn't do so badly. he was much quieter. he was more thoughtful. he got a lot of facts out. it was just very wonky. but when push comes to shove, the policies that president obama's for, whether it's promoting the middle class, looking to support education, not wanting to see the health care cuts that are in the romney/ryan plan, those policies supporting women are much more popular than mitt romney's policies, and i think that the obama team is going to kind of double down on that over the next few weeks. >> let's talk about a piece on cnn.com. you gave president obama some tips on how to win the first debate. >> right. >> writing in part, this is a great little read. you wrote my final piece of advice i

to create some momentum for the obama team while ryan will try to prove last week's debate was not a one and done. a small post debate rise for romney, where in virginia romney picked up three points. he leads there, though a doifrnt poll from cbs shows obama still leading there. the "wall street journal" poll, mitt romney trails in florida and is down six in ohio. a quinnipiac poll shows him up three points in three other states. cnn's paul steinhauser is at the site in danville, kentucky with an inside look. >> reporter: 14 hours from now behind me on this stage, the only vice presidential debate in the campaign. they've been behind closed doors getting ready for this big showdown. the republican running mate got here to kentucky yesterday. before he arrived, he played a little bit of the expectations game, kind of lowering the bar for himself. >> joe biden has been on this stage many times before. it's my first time. sure it's a nervous situation because joe biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics. >> as for vice president joe biden, he gets here later

[ laughter ] and sure, obama was actually just a law school classmate of raddatz's husband julius genachowski who raddatz divorced in 1997. but what woman doesn't love doing favors for her ex-husband's friends? [ laughter ] so clearly the debate -- the whole thing is meaningless until ryan wins. point is, everything about obama is suspicious. unfortunately, not as suspicious as it used to be. in the good old days, we had a new obama scandal every week. he was a secret muslim; wasn't born in america; doesn't have a birth certificate; and was trained by joseph stalin, jeremiah wright, and general grievous.

of the obama administration. he had a bit of a swagger. he is riding a wave of momentum from last week's debate. the poll taken after the denver showdown has the race tied among registered voters. president obama had a five-point advantage three days leading into the debate. voters overwhelmingly said ann romney won the debate. that is the biggest debate when ever recorded by gallup bigger than bill clinton's over george bush. president obama is expected to raise more than $10 million over two days. at an event in los angeles last night, musicians lent support for his reelection.. obama thanked the performers and threw in a not so subtle reference to his debate performance. >> they performed flawlessly night after night. i cannot always say the same. >> the pressure is now on vice president biden who squares off against paul ryan on thursday night in their only debate. >> the obama campaign will counter his trip to virginia tomorrow with the first lady courts voters in the battleground state. she will speak tomorrow at the louden county fairgrounds. tickets are required. >> a statue of christop
on the planet. they tell us that all the time. the fact is barak obama lost the debate not just on style points, he lost it on intellectual points. and it made the media look bad and i think that's why they did that. do i have 15 more seconds? >> bill: yeah, go ahead. >> right after the debate, there were more than a few stories about romney's point about pbs and big bird, okay? yes, it's true that pbs represents a tiny, tiny fraction of the budget. but a more serious media, a more intelligent media would have done stories saying if pbs and big bird are as popular as they keep telling us they are -- >> bill: they could compete in the marketplace. >> why do they have to get government welfare? but the media didn't do that story. they jumped on barak obama's band wagon. he was criticizing it, so they criticized it. >> bill: thank you. on deck, adam corolla facing armageddon in california. five buck a gallon gas prices. corolla is next [ male announcer ] if it wasn't for a little thing called the computer, we might still be making mix tapes. find this. pause this. play this. eject this. write this

"the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us. the rumble in america, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. if you saw jon stewart and me on saturday night, you may have noticed there was a very important theme amidst all the chaos. stewart, an honest and smart liberal person. he believes the federal government should directly help americans who can't or won't help
will have to happen is president obama will have to have a much better debate in new york, about a week and a half away. i've talked to a lot of democrats and big obama fans who are miserable about the president's debate performance because they think he did a bad job and might have ruined his chances. >> why do you think that was? >> you know, part of it was president obama's strategy. he wanted to come in looking presidential. david axlerod says in a conference call this week with reporters that the president didn't want the american people to see two candidates on stage insulting each other and for that reason he stayed above the fray but he needed to look for aggressive. >> stay above the fray? right after the debate, the president's campaign officials and advisories called mitt romney a liar. >> they absolutely did. and i think that's because they realized the strategy didn't work. >> let me ask you about campaign contributions. the obama campaign saying that 181 million i believe was raised in small donations. nevertheless, governor romney was able to raise more than 10 million ri
last night on the debate stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up. >> sean: perfect strategy, liar, liar, liar, pants on fire, fire, fire. funny, i didn't hear anybody mention anything about the president's record or accomplishments, perhaps because there aren't any. instead he's given us 46 million americans on food stamps. you didn't fix that, mr. president. 17 million more than when you took office. 23 million americans un and underemployed. $6 trillion in new obama debt and have four years to fix the worst economy since the great depression, and it's no longer george w. bush's fault. after looking at the latest polls it appears the truth is beginning to catch up with barack obama. hear with reaction, the author of the "new york times" latest book "mugged" ann coulter and fox news contributor, the one and only pat caddell. the author of the study at princeton just lied. >> right. >> sean: he points out that obama purposely took his interpretation of romney's economic plan out of context, which was -- that means the president lied. >> t
's a horrible candidate! the fact that president obama laid down in that debate drives me crazy. now, second number of 47 is unrelated but also happens to be 47. he was 47th in job creation among 50 states when he was the governor of massachusetts. on what grounds does mitt romney talk about job creation. you didn't create jobs under bain or when you were government of massachusetts. jobs, what are you talking about jobs for? you don't know anything about jobs, 47 out of 50 and we're in a fight with this guy? he's leading now? you're kidding me! part of the reason is progressives are more honest than conservatives. when conservatives lose a debate oh, no, we won we won. i don't care, we won. what do liberals do, they said you're right we lost. >> president obama was not prepared for his huge debate. this isn't about left, right good or bad, it's about coming to work to work. >> i think he was taken aback at the brazenness. >> i believe that mr. obama took a licking last night. the public knows that. he seemed not disinterested, but uninterested. he looked as if he really would rather be some
, it was to pump up the base. he did that job this week after obama's disappointing debate. and we saw obama here this week. this was a very busy week in politics. and it is all about enthusiasm in the base in places like san francisco, northern california. if voters here on the democratic side are not enthusiastic about getting out there for obama, if he doesn't have -- if they don't have his back, he's got trouble in congressional races and fund-raising and everything else. an we saw his events in san francisco this week. we were inside a couple of those events. and, boy, they turned out, they were very excited and he seemed much more fired up. i have to say the last couple of times we've seen him, he has seemed a little too down key, low key, almost sleep walking it seems through some of these events. this week in san francisco in the wake of that debate, he got such terrible reviews, i think he's gotten the message and certainly joe biden has gotten the message that they better pump up the energy. >> san franciscans still don't mind writing those big checks? >> susie tauompkins one of the g d
's debate. team romney is also rolling out a new tv ad today, featuring a former obama supporter, who says she has changed his mind. >> i'm disappointed in barack obama as my president, because he promised to bring us all together. and we're all going to be able to prosper. i don't see the prospering. >> and big news out of ohio, where an appeals court has upheld a ruling that reinstates early voting on the final three days before election day. the ruling means that people in ohio can continue to cast their ballots up until election day, depending on the decisions of local election boards. it's a win for the obama campaign, which has filed a lawsuit arguing everyone should be able to vote on those days. we'll have more on all these stories throughout the next three hours. >>> president obama today keeping his focus on jobs, as we have mentioned. the september jobs report showed a drop in the unemployment rate to 7.8%. the president said in his weekly web address that the burden is on congress to keep the economy moving forward. nbc news white house correspondent, mike viqueira joins me now
to ante up in a way that could compromise him in the debate? >> i do. but obama in presenting himself for the next couple weeks, but he's always stepped up to the pressure. >> i think the pressure on biden is mostly to prevent these sort of media narratives as we all know too well they take on a life of their own. and often in negative ways. three weeks ago it wasor romney. now it' obama. i think biden's job is to sort of stop the bleeding. he doesn't need -- he needs to be a narrative. >> he can't attack. he has to defend. if it had gone well, he could have attacked ryan and romney. now he has to defend the president. >> well, i disagree completely because here's the problem with that. this mitt romney's the same mitt romney that we've known for the last six or seven months, the same mitt romney that voters very cautious with the last six or seven months. it's not about defending the president, it's about taking the fight to mitt romney making them defend, that fantasy show he put on during the other debate where he made stuff up and didn't know his own tax plan, making them stick to
's interview, it's sympt symptomatic of what's been going on with the obama campaign. at the debate you had 70 million people get an unfiltered look and you heard barack obama unable to explain what has really happened over the last for years, nor lay out any real rationale for a second term and they saw an energetic mitt romney brimming with ideas, pretty focused, and extremely competent. as far as the tax plan, look, he has said he will not pass a tax plan that is not deficit neutral. he's been very clear about this. his principles are do not change or modify the share of taxes paid at the upper income level, reduce the tax burden on the middle income level, cut rates across the board, particularly so you can create a more welcoming environment for small businesses, reduce the tax burden on small businesses, which are responsible for a disproportionate percentage of employment in this country, and you can do a lot of this by generating growth, getting rid of deductions, getting rid of a lot of the credits, getting rid of a lot of the loopholes and that is the plan he will put forward to cong
the debate. that is now shortened to just 4%, 51-47. it's getting tight, isn't it? president obama cannot afford to have -- >> that's just one poll. >> sorry? >> right. that's in the cnn poll. but there are a lot of other polls out there. we feel good about where we are on the ground, particularly in ohio. as a result of what the president did on the auto bailout, let's remember, mitt romney opposed that. what we've done to increase opportunities for kids to get education, let's remember mitt romney wants to cut that. so at every turn, you know, the president is moving america forward, including ohio forward. mitt romney wants to take us back. >> you guys decided that the best line of defense was attack after debate and say basically yes, mitt romney had a good debate but it was all a pack of lies. and he actually responded to the main lie allegation which is this thing that he's going to be apparently charging a $5 trillion tax cut to the american people, and you've got a -- not personally by name, but we now know it was you. let's just play a clip of this and see what your reaction is.
obama in the first debate. they look back to 2008 and number of columnists pointing out that joe biden had really spectacular, in their mind, performance against sarah palin. they thought he was quote, limber at the lecturn. and that was one of his best performance in his four decade career. so they see him as accomplished debater and expect to take the oaf fins sieve charge they see on the campaign stump in this debate. perhaps the expectations are there. there is also the expectation that paul ryan can turn his wonkiness, his mastery of numbers into something like mitt romney in the first debate to empathy and personalize it. bill: everybody is on record what they expect. you talk about the expectations. everybody lowballs the stuff including to the president to a degree. here is what he said on abc with diane sawyer. >> i think joe needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker but his ideas are the wrong ones. bill: hang onto that word ideas because it will come up a lot tonight. we have not seen joe biden in six days. >> yeah. six days off the campaign trail be
. >> i think obama has to go into the next debate, certainly joe biden on thursday, they have to regain momentum. obviously the debate led to a change in the polls. think romney can change himself and argue toe-to-toe with the president, i want to see the president come back strong next time. >> do you think this puts more pressure on joe biden to ante up in a way that could compromise him in the debate? >> i do. but obama in presenting himself for the next couple weeks, but he's always stepped up to the pressure. >> i think the pressure on biden is mostly to prevent these sort of media narratives as we all know too well they take on a life of their own. and often in negative ways. three weeks ago it was for romney. now it's obama. i think biden's job is to sort of stop the bleeding. he doesn't need -- he needs to be a narrative. >> he can't attack. he has to defend. if it had gone well, he could have attacked ryan and romney. now he has to defend the president. >> well, i disagree completely because here's the problem with that. this mitt romney's the same mitt romney that we've known
. >> well, if cash is king, who is crowned off the first presidential debate? president obama holding the money edge for now, but governor romney's performance might change the game. >> charlie, you followed the numbers, what do you think? >> well, i can tell you, romney campaign denied what i'm going to tell you right now, but i know it's true. i got it from people inside the campaign and not the spokesman, it is that whole numbers, uneven sort of you know, performance on the campaign trail the last couple of weeks. big money that was committed to mitt romney was start to go move elsewhere, starting, beginning of a trend, moving to the senate. >> congressional, yeah, yeah. >> no doubt that was happening. they're hoping that the people inside the campaign raising money in major states are hoping this debate performance will turn things around. i could tell you, it was jazzed up yesterday and jazzed up after the debate. i can't tell you whether it worked yet, we'll know by monday. >> they're saying that they were getting two donations every second after the debate. so they're saying th
best case? finally, rematch. will the town hall format of the next debate give barack obama a chance to show greater empathy. and will mitt romney be just as good when people ask the questions? hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, abc's sam donaldson, nbc's andrea mitchell, msnbc s.e. cupp and joe klein. the new jobs report gives the obama campaign a much-needed assist after the debacle wednesday night in denver. the debate's closing statements told the tale. the president was down and mitt romney was up. >> you know, four years ago we were going through a major crisis, and yet my faith and confidence in the american future is undiminished. >> it's an important election and i'm concerned about america. i'm concerned about the direction america has been taking over the last four years. what kind of america do you want to have for yourself and your children? chris: and the impact wednesday night can be seen at least four ways. first the media consensus, from the left, center and right. the media called the president's performance a failure and say mitt romney may
always said on the trail was he could not wait for his first debate with president obama to take some of these criticisms to him face to face and in that first debate, he really delivered on that promise. he took it to the president and the confidence he had been building over the years has been growing ten-fold in the last ten days. >> a.b., whoever you think won the v.p. debate, both ryan and joe biden won in terms of politics. the question at this point is how do the guys aet the top of the ticket, how do they capitalize on that? >> how do they move forward? >> mitt romney has to do what he did last week again or ten days ago. he needs to do that again. if you watched mitt romney he wasn't a good debater at all. i don't think he was in '07 or '08 or '11. but, boy, this year he's turned into a terrific debater. i think president obama has the greatest challenge. he's not joe biden. he's never given in the campaign so far as passionate the way joe biden did the other night. he has to do that. he has to be as convincing, probably more. he has to look like he wants it, like he's enjoyi
last night's debate whether you support or oppose president obama, one thing we pray for is his health. joe biden doesn't have the temperament to be the president of the united states. stuart: i was watching it on the split screen. what shocked me all the way through the antics, and i use that word advisedly, antics, the smirking, mugging for the camera and contemptuous laughter. i couldn't concentrate on the issues for looking at joe biden and that's a fact. >> it really is the most memorable take away from the debate not the facts, and i think that biden had a strong command of the facts, as did paul ryan. it was the means created today and biden's smirking and interrupting. i have two boys if either of them acted toward another human being the way that joe biden acted toward paul ryan i'd take away video games for a month. it's not acceptable and i don't think it's something the obama campaign can be excited about. one take away, paul ryan spent his dae by the time talking about mitt romney. joe biden spent his debate time talking about joe biden and that's the different. the goal o
unrecognizable obama during the debate. then the next day he kind of came alive. he was on fire again, et cetera. has his camp said anything about his new strategy or returning to the old strategy? anything to that degree? >> reporter: right. well, they have talked about the president responding to the romney that they said showed up at the debates. the president very aggressive now and all indications are that's the strategy into the next debate as well. one thing we're seeing is that top advisers for the president are also still attacking mitt romney for his performance during that debate. the on the sunday morning shows, a couple of top advisers, david axelrod and robert gibbs calling it him dishonest. one said governor romney has a strange relationship with the truth. >> mitt did a superb acting job. you know, he did everything but learn tap dance. >> he was dishonest when he said he never proposed $5 trillion in tax cuts, that was dishonest. you said on the broadcast to 70 million americans, i will repeal obama care, but i will still be able to cover people with pre-existing conditions. ten
